Learning Finnish
Finnish isn't easy but language training is widely available whether you'd like to be a full-time student, complete a summer university course, or study online. The increasing availability of online courses should be of particular interest to people planning to move to Finland; Finnish language is commonly cited as the greatest difficulty for foreigners when looking for work as well as in the workplace. Studying online allows people to learn the language prior to arriving in Finland.

Studying Finnish at Universities

Universities offer courses in Finnish and Swedish for their international staff and students. Some universities also open their courses to those who are not working or studying at the university. Courses range from beginners' level to advanced, some progress at an 'easy' rate while others are intensive. For details of courses, eligibility to enrol, dates, prerequisite skills etcetera, visit the site of the institution you would like to learn more about.
